Tip 1: Maintaining a fitness journal
We normally keep a journal for preserving our memories but it is also a great tool for maintaining your weight loss. In this fitness journal, the following things should be updated every day such as:
- Amount of intake of calories for each meal.
- Amount of water intake per day
- Exercise time
- Amount of calories burnt
Tip 2: Join a fitness group
It is highly recommended to join a fitness group where you can mingle with more people who wish to achieve similar fitness goals. The rapport and support one gets from the people in the fitness group will be very effective in motivating each individual to exercise regularly and achieve their fitness goals.
Tip 3: Yoga
Yoga makes one’s body strong and flexible which improves the functioning of the respiratory, circulatory, digestive and hormonal systems. Yoga ensures emotional stability, provides relaxation and clarity of mind.
Tip 4: Eat more complex carbohydrates and reduce the intake of simple carbohydrates
Complex carbohydrates require a longer time period to break down in the body. Since it gives long term energy, one will not feel hungry frequently. Simple carbohydrates will only give short term energy and has less nutritional value. Hence, one will feel hungry frequently.
Tip 5: Consume more water
Each individual should at least drink eight glasses of water daily because our body is made up of 75 percent of water. Drinking more water aids in faster fat burning process. When your body feels dehydrated, one will have the desire to eat more.
Keeping your body fit is the best medicine you can give for your body. It does not mean that if you are getting older, it is considered as the ticket to get fatter. We should understand clearly that in our young age, it is easy to lose weight just by including occasional exercise activities in our daily routine. However, as our age increases, the metabolic rate decreases which cause severe weight gain.
